Sweet Tooth

I'm a young pediatric dentist with a passion for baking, photography, and blogging. Although I spend my days preventing and fixing cavities, I love all things sweet and use my blog to chronicle my baking adventures every week. 

Oreo Truffle Cupcakes

Believe it or not I don’t have cookies and cream or Oreo cupcakes posted here on the blog. I did an epic Oreo...more

“Sweet Tooth” Funfetti Cookie Cake

A lot has happened since I last posted – I entered a new decade and I’m a business owner! I purchased a pediatric dental practice in central Connecticut two weeks ago and launched a whole new brand for the office. I’ve worked 12 hour days for much of the past few weeks, but couldn’t be more excited about this new venture ....more

Champagne, Rosé, and Red Wine Gummy Bears

Valentine’s Day is a little over one week away and I’m celebrating properly this year with some rosé, champagne, and red wine gummy bears! I saw the rosé version on Sprinkles Bakes last summer and immediately ordered the gummy bear mold, but am just FINALLY getting around to trying these little guys out. Last summer Sugarfina had an enormous waitlist to order their rosé gummy bears, but by now they’re finally fully in stock ....more

Funfetti Buttercream

While I did have a few “semi” healthy recipes lined up to share in the month of January, things got busy (story of all our lives!) and here I am on January 22nd sharing a recipe only for buttercream made mostly of sugar, butter, and cake mix from a box. Not exactly the stuff resolutions are made of, but definitely the dose of happiness some of us need this time of year. Who needs another peanut butter oat bar when you can have obnoxious sprinkles and rainbow colored everything on a gloomy, cold January night!? ...more

Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Christmas trees! Stupidly big, colorful, sparkly, and over the top. That’s just how I like em ....more

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

I think I have officially exhausted my capacity for creating pumpkin treats this fall. I spent the month of November on a pumpkin muffin-making extravaganza. I wanted to introduce myself to a bunch of the local medical and dental offices as a new pediatric dentist in town, and I knew I couldn’t show up empty handed – so 19 dozen pumpkin muffins it was! ...more

Monster Cookie Sandwiches

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you know how much I adore Halloween desserts. There are SO many options, both scary and creepy, that all get the imagination going. I love the googly-eye trend and obviously anything with teeth, so I was excited to give these monster cookies a try ....more

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

I gotta get at least one apple recipe in before pumpkin season completely takes over. I baked for a BBQ a few weekends ago, and wanted to bring a dessert that would surely be a crowd pleaser and make use of the abundance of apples in my fridge. Bars make for a great treat to bring for a crowd – they travel well and can be cut large or small depending on the number of your guests ....more

Peanut Butter Ice Cream “Pupcakes”

Oh hi, remember me!? It’s be a tough few weeks in my personal and professional life, but nothing makes me feel more like myself than getting in the kitchen and baking something sweet. I finally have free time now that my oral board exam is over, and I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things with semi-regular posting ....more
